Mainstreaming Biodiversity Goals for the Private Sector

20 November 2018

How do we make international biodiversity goals relevant to businesses?

A new joint report from the Valuing Nature Programme, Joint Nature Conservation Committee, and the University of Oxford analyses avenues of action that businesses can take to manage their own biodiversity impacts and draws out the business case for undertaking action for biodiversity.

The main report outlines fourteen case studies to demonstrate how business actions on biodiversity can transfer between sectors and geographic locations.

This assessment illustrates a range of reasons why businesses are driven to undertake action that is beneficial to biodiversity, such as compliance with environmental regulation, operational, reputational and financial incentives; and highlighting the co-benefits that biodiversity actions can deliver for the environment, society, and businesses themselves.
